Don’t Let Student Debt Keep You From Your Dream Job

The average graduate of the college class of 2018 owed $29,200 in student debt at the time they finished their degree. For grad students, that number can soar up to $160,000. That’s a lot of money, but increasing debt shouldn’t stop you from pursuing a career in the social-impact space. There are options.

The Public Service Loan Forgiveness program (PSLF) makes it possible for you to pay your loans and follow your dream. Whether you are already enrolled in the program or are just reading about it for the first time, here is what you need to know about how to manage student debt while working for a nonprofit.
